That Time You Find: Horribly Painted Russel Wright American Modern


My wife hates going to thrift stores because they smell like old shoes. Well, I hate going to thrift stores and finding someone's paint-the-pottery project. No matter that those projects are hideous, incompetent attempts at "art," but it's even worse when a perfectly perfect design object is made to suffer.

Case-in-point: This Russel Wright American Modern water pitcher in Granite Gray I recently found. Nooo! Why!?! Tons of great information on Wright at the Manitoga website.

So, we're in the middle of bringing this back to life as you can see on the left. After some elbow grease, the result on the right.

Get it now!


Yes, this is a painted American Modern water pitcher
